NICs and Untangle

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
First let me say I did post on the Untangle Forum and went through their Wiki and talked with my preminum support tech from Untangle. I ask if there are known issues with my board (Intel DG31PR) or with all boards in regards to picking up (meaning detecting) a third NIC? My two additional NICs are identical Real Tech FA 311's and one is detected without issue.

The Wiki on the Untangle forum only speaks about disabling your onboard NIC and enabling one of the others. I want my onboard to stay enabled,and both my added (into PCI slots) to be picked up.

I do notice that there are NICS with 2 or more ports, but these get real expensive (more than a mid-level motherboard). I also notice the Gigabyte EP45-UD3P has two onboard NICS. The trouble with this idea is that these boards are getting hard to find (read only on ebay). I wonder if using a 2 on-board NIC motherboard and adding a third to a PCI slot will get me where I want to be (and that is with a DMZ). Thanks, Untangle is a blast to play around with.

Alright dude. if you want a DMZ the best thing to do is have a separate pc act as a firewall / DMZ. it doesn't have to be a fast box... just make sure that it has 2 GB ports.

wut?


I've used Untagle with onboard NICs with zero issues. My last Untangle system was a Via C3 using an onboard NIC and a PCI NIC.

Worked great.

Do you happen to have another non-Realrek NIC? It might be the OS sees the same identifer for both of them. Check Realtek's site for firmware tools. I know my Intel one allows me to modify the firmware settings.

There are quite a few other motherboards with two NICs.

You need 3 NICs for a DMZ... one for WAN, one for LAN, and one for DMZ.

A seperate PC is not a DMZ.... a seperate PC would be in the DMZ.
Once again...

Untangle is a software implementation of converting a computer into a router with full functionality.

Thanks for the tip about a potential problem with using two exact NICs. I have two bids in on UD3P mobo's perhaps I get one. I will look around for others but my "go to" board for socket 775 is the UD3P. Boy those dual ethernet NICs are sure expensive.

When a post starts out, with any form of the word "dude" in it you know it won't be conveying a 'warm fuzzy" feeling.

With Untangle up front it is rare I get 2 cookies on any of my internal hosts. Cookies are really no problem but the amount of trojans (blocked) is simply amazing. When I fully understand everything Untangle like the back of my hand I will move over into another group of security solutions.

im sorry but im just wondering. is this all set up on your main PC? because if it is there is more risk of infection of your computer than would be if you were using a second box.

Pyro, I will dialogue with you but you have to try and speak a bit more direct,like what are you asking? Have you at least went to the Untangle website an become a bit familar with what an Untangle box is? I can't see anyone asking the question that I think you are if you have given Untangle a bit of an overview.

Here is a hint, an Untangle box uses a proprietary operating system. It does have a browser attached to it but you won't be loading it up with applications or gaming on it.

Let me edit this. You will be loading the Untangle up with applications but they will not be of the word processing or spread sheet type. Well even better, the image comes loaded up and you have 14 days to decide what ones you keep.
